Striped Easter or Paste in dungi



For me Easter holidays are the most beautiful celebration, I prefer Easter better than Christmas. The feeling may be due to the cloudless sky outside, I perceive it as a rebirth, kind of a new beginning. I think the symbolism of the spiritual side merges with re-resurrected nature, rendered by the spring.

Today we’ll see how we can decorate the Easter table. As I announced on Facebook I have accepted the Bloggers challenge: DIY Easter Table – launched by Palas Mall from Iasi. So far all well and good, I was all excited, full of ideas one better then the other … until I came into possession of the kit. Panic! Panic! Panic!

What I got? – An apron (by coincidence is matching my kitchen wall watch 🙂 ), a glass vase (this is a simple job, being transparent and having a minimalist design I can unleash idea after idea in fact most of the decorations ideas were with and about the vase), a doily with embroidery on the borders (send me somewhere in the romantic, or rustic side), 3 wood eggs and a set of aquarelle plus a brush ( now we have an issue). These eggs were ‘raw’ in the way that they were not colored / drawn / painted or so… That moment when your ‘life’ passes in front of your eyes hardly trying to remember when and if you ever accomplished or even attempted to manifest your creativity on an egg. And start to evaluate how limited is you talent in painting or if is even there. As if wasn’t not enough I also found a cardboard written with caps lock STRIPES. Suddenly I felt the effect of saying “Watch out what you wish for, that might come true.” Yes, because I’ve always had an affinity for striped … on my clothes and on my car hood only.

But I was not discouraged … I’ll have a striped Easter! With a little brainstorming and two sleepless nights this is the kind of result I reached. I tried to “include” the keyword into all the decor elements, starting with napkins on plates for which I have created a ‘stripe’ made by string, carrying on with the graphics on the eggs until the floral decor elements where stripes are rendered in -a subtle way.

Until next time stay fashion!

From Romania with love!



Pentru mine sarbatorile pascale sunt cele mai frumoase, ador Pastele un pic mai mult decat Craciunul. Sentimentul poate se datoreaza si cerului senin de afara, percep totul ca o renastere, ca pe un nou inceput. Aici cred ca simbolistica din latura spirituala se contopeste cu natura re-inviata, redata noua de primavara.

Azi vorbim despre cum aranjam masa de Paste. Dupa cum am anuntat si pe Facebook am acceptat Provocarea Bloggerilor: DIY- Masa de Paste lansata de Palas Mall Iasi. Pana aici toate bune si frumoase, eram toata incantata, plina de idei care mai decare… pana am intrat in posesia kit-ului. Panica! Panica! Panica!

Ce am primit? “ Un sort de bucatarie (coincidenta sau nu este in asorteu cu ceasul meu de bucatarie 🙂 ), o vaza din sticla transparenta (aici treaba este simpla, fiind transparenta si avand un design minimalist imi pot da frau liber ideilor intrucat poate fi adaptata dupa bunul plac de altfel cele mai multe idei le-am avut cu decorarea vazei), un servetel de panza avand o broderie pe margine (ma ducea cu gandul undeva in zona romanticului, a rusticului), 3 oua si un set de aquarelle plus o pensula (dintr-o datele problemei s-au schimbat). Aceste oua erau raw in sensul ca nu au venit deja colorate/ desenate/ vopsite/ pictate… stiti acel moment in care iti trece viata prin fata ochilor incercand sa-ti aduci aminte cand si daca vreodata ai realizat sau macar incercat sa iti manifesti creativitatea pe un ou. Si incepi sa evaluezi la cat se limiteaza talentul tau de incondeiator sau daca, macar exista. Ca si cum nu ar fi fost suficient am mai gasit si un cartonas pe care scris cu litere mari DUNGI. Dintr-o data am simtit pe pielea mea efectul zicalei “Ai grija ce-ti doresti, ca s-ar putea sa se indeplineasca”. Da, pentru ca eu mereu am avut o afinitate pentru dungi … in vestimentatie si pe capota masinii mele :).

Insa, nu m-am descurajat. Asta este, voi avea un Paste in dungi! Cu un pic de brainstorming si 2 nopti nedormite cam asta a rezultat.

Pana data viitoare ramaneti in tendinte!

Din Iasi cu dragoste!

    Foarte ingenioase aranjamente, mi-a plăcut foarte tare vaza cu “flori de morcovi” ?
